PD resource content

Resource material

"This toolkit seeks to reframe classroom management by questioning the assumption that teachers must always lead and be in control and that students must always follow. This model supports teachers in responding to student behavior with the goal of keeping learning on track rather than keeping absolute control. It focuses on student development instead of punishment."  This resource walks through the model with suggestions on how to implement or deal with different situations.
